After the painful lesson I endured last week, I decided to have my supplies delivered at my doorstep. Unfortunately, after last night’s well received showers, the weather showed no sign of clearing up. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for the rain, since it made light work of my morning tasks. However, its uncertainty threatened to derail my plans for today.
As the day progressed the weather did not change for the better or worse, so I decided to take a chance. The trip to town went much faster than expected, and so were the transactions. I collected the items, then went outside to wait for the transport. The sky got dark all of a sudden. I felt a drop of water on my face. Just as I was about to prepare for the worse, the transport pulled up. I breathed a sigh of relief, but we were not out of the woods as yet.
We loaded the pick up truck and departed. There was a tense chill in the air. The hills, in the distance, were covered by a mist. I could not even see the horizon. We took about 15 minutes to reach my home, and unload. Within a few minutes of me packing the supplies away, down came the rain. Talk about perfect timing!
I have to admit, the price I paid to have the supplies delivered to my doorstep, was a lot less than the two days of pain I endured last week. There were no unnecessary delays or use of energy, which allowed me to continue working as usual this afternoon. Bit by bit, I am learning how to weigh the pros and cons of decisions and the benefits of strategic actions. I truly appreciate each learning experience.
